“Our first project is called the Resplash Leadership Program; an intensive 3-month online course with two (2) tracks — a coding curriculum and a startup curriculum. Each fellow will be paired with a technical mentor who can code, and a business mentor with operating experience in tech, to support them as they journey through the program.
